at the politics of a city like los angeles, identity is strong. it is a localized phenomenon. stagnation will further deepen those things. one in the difficulties is that republicans really need upward mobility in order to make this and move away from the idea that it is a single issue consistency. another thing about taxes that i mentioned is that this is why i keep thinking about this. i take your point about primaries. tax is a pretty big issue. if you're looking for a candidate who does well, very big constituency. romney is not strongly over performing. you think a tax cut message might resonate. the politics have changed considerably. there are many conservative folks who have talked about the idea and some of calling for marginal tax cuts, why don't you call for a dramatic expansion of the child-care tax credit th. >> some say it barack obama represented the gary hart vote as well as jesse jackson. will you ever have a republican primary candidate who can unite those sensibilities as well? the problem that mitt romney faces is that initially he had a plan that was less have the ca

. host: let's get a call from los angeles, fran in los angeles on the democratic line. caller: good morning, c-span, and professor. romney outsourced jobs to china when he was the owner of bain capital from 1998 to 2002. he has said that he's not concerned about the poor. the republicans blocked the jobs bill that president obama offered, because they wanted him to fail. why do you think that mr. romney and the republicans would do better than president obama in the next four years? necessarily think that mr. romney and the republicans would do better in the next four years, personally. however, i do think that mr. romney and other republicans have an audience in virginia, a core element of support. those individuals feel that mr. romney and the republicans will do better. there's a sentiment in virginia that government is too big and the debt is too high. i don't think anyone would disagree with the fact that the debt is too high. some opponents of president obama are saying you have had your chance, so give someone else a chance. and there's the talk about whether or not president
was when the mayors of the big cities, including the mayor of los angeles, a democrat, came to see me, and they unanimously said the decline in urban america stems from the decline in the american family. so i do think we need to strengthen family. when barbara holds an aids baby, she's showing a certain compassion for family; when she reads to children, the same thing. i believe that discipline and respect for the law -- all of these things should be taught to children, not in our schools, but families have to do that. i'm appalled at the highest outrageous numbers of divorces -- it happens in families, it's happened in ours. but it's gotten too much. and i just think that we ought to do everything we can to respect the american family. it can be a single-parent family. those mothers need help. and one way to do it is to get these deadbeat fathers to pay their obligations to these mothers -- that will help strengthen the american family. and there's a whole bunch of other things that i can't click off in this short period of time. >> all right, mr. perot, you have one minute. >> if i

's been done by the milken family foundation, los angeles and in other places, if you take a child in the third grade at the middle level in the 50th percentile, math and reading, and give him an excellent teacher, in two years that child will be at the 80th percentile, if you give that child a poor teacher, that child in two years will be at the 20th percentile. what more do we need to know? but that good teachers make a huge difference in the life of a child. not all the difference. not everything. most important person in the child's life is a parent, obviously. but if you can move from the 50th to the 80th with a teacher or 50 to 20 with a poor teacher you've got to pay attention to the quality of the teaching force. the true evaluation isn't just about improving teachers. it's also about identifying who are the ones who should be promoted, rewarded, given more opportunity, given more responsibility, and encouraging out 69 profession people who are -- out of the profession people who are harming kids. host: how do you do that fairly? guest: you do it fairly through a number of

. this is a "los angeles times" head line covering the welfare attack the first panel discussed. it was repeated by rick santorum at the republican convention. this clip got a lot of play. people found it very refreshing that the "los angeles times" was willing to directly call out rick santorum and to say that the claim was inaccurate. it does not say, repeats welfare attack calls -- called inaccurate. there is no punch polling. it is very direct. this is the person making the claim, and it is inaccurate. this is a kind of coverage we do not often see. it is quite powerful. it has the potential to make politicians think twice, to make them have that conversation that was talked about in the first panel. do we want to go over this ? fact texting is not magic -- over this line? fact checking is not magic. what else constructively can journalists do? this is an example i think might be especially helpful to reporters. think about how to report a story. you guys don't write your own head lice. i understand. you do not have control over whether you can get a line like that into your publication. but

when i am washington, d.c., or campaigning, why would the mayor of los angeles to be in florida, new mexico, nevada, and i said it is simple. it matters to the people of california who is in the white house. we believe we have benefited greatly by the policies of president obama. we believe strongly the bush policies set us back. you talk about enthusiasm. we know president obama will win. we have tens of thousands of volunteers across california who will be calling into nevada, colorado, every state here in california. this is why you ought to vote. there are two tabs, a crystal clear choice before us. one man, our president, wants to invest in the middle class. another will take us back to the failed policies that got us the worst recession since the great depression, and there is a great deal of support. i do not know who they are talking to. talk to some of the volunteers here. there are kids, older folks like me, they are here and excited. my kids are coming. initially i said, this is a big day. i want my whole family there. they want to work. they want to do what they can to ma
that are accustomed to it like miami and phoenix and los angeles and alice, but it is spreading diversity to places that have not known much of it in their history. from 20 -- from 2000-10, it accounted for the majority of the population in 18 states and at least 40% and seven others. it is bringing new flavors to places that have long had the demographic of a blood of white bread and mayonnaise. -- equivalent of white bread and mayonnaise. the transformation has not made its way as quickly in the political every now, but inexorable, the democracy is leaving an imprint there, too. and when bill clinton was first elected, 12% of the vote was non-wide. 80% of the vote was cast by whites. when barack obama was elected, 26% of the vote was cast by non- whites. hispanics were 2% of the vote in 1992 and 9% in 2008. and the best estimate is that 50,000 young hispanic people who were born in the u.s. and our citizens turn 18 every month, and will do so for at least the next 20 years. if whites and minorities voted in the same way they did in 2008, but at the proportions that they were in 1992, john mccain,

and government, foundations and universities. ask the mayors who are here. [applause] los angeles is getting green and chicago is getting an infrastructure bank because republicans and democrats are working together to get it. they didn't check their brains at the door. they didn't stop disagreeing, but their purpose was to get something done. now, why is this true? why does cooperation work better than constant conflict? because nobody's right all the time, and a broken clock is right twice a day. [laughter] [applause] and every one of us -- every one of us and every one of them, we're compelled to spend our fleeting lives between those two extremes, knowing we're never going to be right all the time and hoping we're right more than twice a day. [laughter] unfortunately, the faction that now dominates the republican party doesn't see it that way. they think government is always the enemy, they're always right, and compromise is weakness. just in the last couple of elections, they defeated two distinguished republican senators because they dared to cooperate with democrats on issues importan
